He was 75. No cause of death was given, at least not yet.
It really is the end of an era.
I’m always going to think of The Cars (and Blondie) as the bands who rescued us from disco in the late ’70s and early ’80s. It was such a moment, a real sharp break from the bankruptcy of Disco Lucy when those iconic guitar riffs would come over the speakers at parties. And I think we all knew that a new era started.
Thanks Ric, you will be missed.
